Speaker information

Professor Karin B Lesnik-Oberstein, University of Reading

Professor Karin B Lesnik-Oberstein will be considering how children’s literature and neuroscience, which may seem on the one hand quite disparate fields, but on the other are increasingly brought in to potential connection through the increasing number of neuroscientific studies making claims about childhood as well as literature, can in fact be read to be rooted both in the same beliefs about thought and emotion as visible ‘objects’.
